"I am thrilled to announce our new, expanded community partnership with Providence Health & Services," Timbers president Merritt Paulson said in a statement.

"This partnership signifies a huge commitment to the community from the largest private employer in Oregon, which will keep Providence Park the name of our facility for years to come.

"Additionally, I want to thank JELD-WEN for their past and continued significant commitment to the Portland Timbers."

The statement added: 'JELD-WEN Windows & Doors, the stadium naming-rights partner for the Timbers' first three seasons in MLS, will continue to serve as one of the club's Founding Partners and will continue its involvement in the Timbers' community outreach, including the Score-a-Goal, Plant-a-Tree program. JELD-WEN Windows & Doors will remain the Official Window and Door Provider of Major League Soccer and the Timbers.'
